April 23, 2010
If you want to see what a life infused by dance looks like, take a look at this this trailer of “Breath Made Visible,” the film tribute to nearly 90-year-old West Coast avant garde choreographer Anna Halprin. The adoring documentary directed by former student Ruedi Gerber “captures both the passion and the pioneering spirit” of her revolutionary performances, writes New York Times reviewer Jeannette Catsoulis.
“Inhaling nature and exhaling it in dance, she follows her bliss with whimsical, soul-stirring expressiveness,” according to Catsoulis. She writes that the film “portrays a woman with angels in her feet and innovation in her blood. Long may she rock.” Even this trailer will have you saying, “Amen.” (The complete review: )
